Lucked into finding some more for my brother tonight...  Coronation Elrond, Gimli, and Arwen.  I got the Isengard Orc for myself, and there's an Elendil figure that if my brother doesn't take I'm gladly gonna take...  Not sure if he needs him.

Just hope I can find a Shelob sometime soon...  Or I'll just wait for the multi-pack she's in I guess.

I saw a Shelob today for $4.88. I could try to grab tomorrow.

That's ok Ook, but thanks.  Just gonna hope to get the multi-pack if worse comes to worse...  It's one of the few figures I definitely want for myself and know my brother wants of course since he collects everything.

I'm pondering how I'll get him a NECA Balrog...   :-\

Dang, I forgot to post that I found ROTK Sam and Frodo Mt Doom, Gothmog and Eye of Sauron on Wednesday at TRU!  Nice looking stuff, I have not opened them yet though

The next FOTR wave should also be out fairly soon here

Congrats on the find Scott.  Its been pretty quiet on the LOTR front lately, but I guess that is to be expected.  I'm pretty much happy with what I have for figures, I don't have room for much more, but the Eye of Sauron is kind of tempting to me for some reason.  How do the figures all look?  From the pics I've seen the Frodo and Sam aren't too bad either.

They are nice.  I dig the dirty look of Sam and Frodo.  Gothmog is the winner of the group.  I'm not exactly sure why they waited for the last ROTK wave to finally do him but it was worth the wait.  I bought the Eye as well, not sure why because the scale is almost silly (probably the most out of scale figure of all time actually) but it looked pretty neat.  I passed on Legolas since I already have like 6 of them, most in the same outfit.  That is the one frustrating thing about LOTR collecting, the subtle costume changes that happen during the films make it difficult to tell what is new and what isn't.

I will probably buy the upcoming Council Legolas, possibly Strider and Dark Galadriel from FOTR and probably Balrog Gandalf and Aged Theoden.  What was shown at Toy Fair for LOTR?  I sort of didn't even look at anything for that  :-[

I don't remember too much from Toy Fair either, I think it was a fairly subdued showing overall.  Toy Biz has redone their various web pages, and the LOTR does have some updates on it.  The "Epic Trilogy" collection figures are listed under ROTK.  Other than that, it looks like lots of gift packs.

Edit:  Here's the photo gallery from LOTRGuide.com's coverage of Toy Fair:  LOTR Toy Biz Gallery

I bet I'll have to wait for Sam Goody to bail me out again, since now there's so many Birthday Bilbos and Queen Arwens hanging on the pegs at Wal-Mart, and TRU and Target don't bother anymore with this line.

At least these will be the last couple of series, at least for me.  :)

Some updated pics at toybiz for the LOTR stuff.  Nothing you haven't probably seen, but some of the box sets are pretty nice.

The Final Battle set looks sweet, mostly because I don't have an Attack Troll yet.  :(

The Green Dragon has HI-RES pics up of the Epic Trilogy assortment, straight from Toy Biz.  You can check them out on their front page HERE, or visit their photo archives HERE.

Picked up Galadriel Entranced, Gothmog, and the Eye of Sauron at Suncoast today. I considered buying the Mount Doom Frodo and Sam, Council Legolas, and Weathertop Strider, but since I lost my job, I decided to pass on them since I need to watch the spending.

They also had the Pelennor Fields gift set, which looked pretty cool.

Forgot to mention that I found the Pelennor Fields and Lothlorien gift packs last night at TRU.  Whichever one has five figures was $49.99, the other was $39.99 so basically $100 after taxes.  Same as $80 US.

I'm looking for a Galadriel Entranced still.  I found the FOTR Wave a couple of times but she was already gone :-\

I'll probably eventually get the Pelennor and Lothlorien sets.  Maybe from Amazon
